Brief Description (optional) This Bronco was purchased new by my Aunt and Uncle in Poseyville, IN around 1966. It was manufactured in Oct of 1965 according to the VIN#, and my Aunt was aware it was one of the very first ones as she noted.

My Dad later purchased it from my Aunt when I was very young, likely a toddler. Dad used it all throughout my childhood for hunting and fishing trips. He even drove it to work at times.

It had been neglected for years, and I took a renewed interest in it and Dad told me to have at it. I completely rebuilt the braking system, added a temporary seat, did a quick paint job to make it presentable and retard further rust, and many other various parts to get it driving.

It currently is waiting for me to restore it. I was surprised and honored when a photo of it was voted in #2 place for the 2012 Calendar, and was used on the cover.

Other Notes
1966 Ford Bronco Other Notes
I currently do not posses the skills or working area to accomplish a full restoration I feel it deserves. Once I establish a shop to work in so I can do a complete tear down, I'll keep it functioning and capable of being driven, and attempt to slow any further deterioration.
